We would like to thank everyone who sponsored Paul & Beth in the dare devil event that took place on Saturday.  Anyone who has been on our facebook page would see that we were all gutted when the organisers of the Sphering / Zorbing event cancelled on us at the last minute.

Not to be outdone by the weather I set to organising an alternative for them for the Saturday with literally a few hours to spare. I managed to secure them places on the Go Ape tree top adventure which includes the longest zip wire in the UK.  What I didn't tell Paul & Beth that was before they got to the zip wire they had to complete a series of 30 tree top obstacles that were around 16m above the ground secured simply by a climbing harness :naughtysmile:

Needless to say when they discovered this there faces were a complete picture!!    They managed to get some video and photos as they went round and I picked up some photos and video of them leaving.  I am working my way through the footage however it you would like to see the photos of the day they can be found on our facebook page photos here:

For a little chuckle at their leaving antics.... see this short video here:

And to see Beth get rescued from the Tarzan swing and cargo net - see here:

I will upload more as I get them ready :-)

Thanks again to everyone for all your support :hug: :hug: :hug:   

They will still get to do their Roll down the hill however they will have to wait until March 2011. Somehow though compared to this it will be a walk in the park!!  :evillaugh:   :evillaugh:

This should be a you tube event please sponser Paul and Beth for this as it will help all the residents of Sunny Harbour and take some of the pressure off the finances

We have sponsored here at the Clan and are mugging Grandparents for their favourite foster cat of course Miss Skye Lark Grumpy Guts from Sunny Harbour ;D

Well all I can say is that Paul & our neice Beth are mad  :Crazy:   however they have decided to do a Zorbing / Sphering event to help raise pennies for the kitties at Sunny Harbour.

They hope to raise £500 for the kitties to help towards our ever increasing veterinary bills by being hurled down a steep hill in the Scottish countryside at speeds of 30mph +!!   :Crazy:  :Crazy:

They may just be mad to go through with it but both have agreed and it is now booked for the 2nd October!!  so no getting out of it now  :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:

If anyone would like to support them by sponsorship or making a pledge to them for this event please visit this page:
